COLUMBUS, Ohio — Suzanne Ward from Findlay in Hancock County is the is the fourth winner of Ohio's Vax-a-Million.

“With one Ohio Vax-a-Million drawing remaining, I urge Ohioans who have yet to get the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated and continue Ohio’s progress moving beyond this pandemic,” Gov. Mike DeWine said.

The entry period for the next and final Ohio Vax-a-Million drawing ends June 20 at 11:59 p.m.

The Vax-a-Million program, which is being run by the Ohio Lottery and the Ohio Department of Health, awards one vaccinated adult Ohio resident with $1 million each Wednesday for five weeks. The names of the winners are announced live on-air during a special Ohio Lottery broadcast on News 5 Cleveland at 7:29 p.m. each Wednesday.

The winner of a full-ride scholarship to an Ohio university is also announced every Wednesday night; that winner is drawn from a pool of vaccinated Ohioans aged 12-17.
